Fisker, Kay Otto

Fisker, Kay Otto (1893–1965). Danish architect. His inspiration came from Danish vernacular buildings and from German Modernism. He was best known for Aarhus University (with Povl Stegmann and Christian Frederik Møller—1932–45), in which traditional materials (e.g. bricks) and simple forms were used. He had a considerable reputation as a designer of public and private housing, notably the Co-operative Building Society Housing, Borups Allé and Stefansgade, Copenhagen (1918–21); the Voldparken Housing and School, Husum (1945); and many other schemes, including Interbau Housing, Berlin (1956–7). His Modern Danish Architecture (with Francis Rowland Yerbury (1885–1970)—1927) disseminated Danish achievements in Britain and America.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
